I work at an elementary school. I started there last December, and worked until the end of the school year. I think they were happy with me, and wanted me back this fall. But I was hired to be an aide, and the budget only funds aides for 100 of the 180 school days. I also am not employed over the summer. And since I'm not working for my own enjoyment, but for the sole purpose of getting money, I decided that I needed to find another job. (I'm leaving out all the frustrating aspects of the job, because those are present at any job, and it doesn't do to dwell on them. Suffice it to say they ARE there).
Anyway, so I found another job. It's a secretarial position in the Mechanical Engineering Department at BYU. It's about 3/4 time, and works with my crazy schedule, and it pays quite a bit more, and I start on Monday. I'm nervous, and a little sad about not being at school with Wade and Isaac. I love peeking in their classroom doors and seeing them doing their things. I love it that I know all the teachers. I love it when I'm walking down the hall and I hear, "There's my mommy!" I love it that I can watch Wade play football during recess (although I don't love recess duty...who does?!!) But it's time to move on. My last day at school is Friday. Wish me luck!!
